Arrest warrants show employees of Johnny Rockets in Gatlinburg called police after they heard a large commotion in the bathroom, pounding on the wall, a child crying. The warrant says officers found a child that came out of the bathroom with a very red face and bruising.

The child says the man started kicking him and police say they found a fresh red mark that was similar to a shoe impression near the child's groin area.
